    “SCOTT COLTRANE: Well, sure. We’re a member. And we enjoy being there. And I think the membership policies always evolve in organizations like that. And we cooperate with them and provide them information and judge ourselves on how we’re doing. And I think that’s important.”

    You know when your students swear they’re good students but they just don’t test well? Yeah…

    When UO is booted from the AAU, will it also stop its self-proclamation as the flagship university?

    “We’re in a unique position because our state has been disinvesting in higher education. And that’s really the challenge of most public universities today. ”

    So Coltrane’s out on the job market? Good. Comes across as a nice smart guy, plus points for being a tall male, but he has no clue how to administer.

    UofO wouldn’t be so hard to run if the administration would simply do the right thing and stop creating their own problems.

      Is the administration free to do the right thing, or is it wholly owned by Athletics?

    We need stable leadership at UO.
